K-pop girl group Dreamcatcher first visited Manila in 2019, and the members are excited to reunite with their Filipino InSomnias.
A day before their Dreamcatcher: Under the Moonlight in Manila show, JiU, SuA, Siyeon, Handong, Gahyeon, Dami and Yoohyeon met the media for a press conference.
“It’s really been a long time since we visited the Philippines, and I’m sure InSomnias have been waiting for us for a long time. I hope this particular concert satiates their needs,” SuA said through an interpreter.
The group also talked about their music style since Dreamcatcher’s sound is known to have elements of rock and metal. Siyeon said each member has a different preference when it comes to music, but she is a big fan of metal rock bands.
Yoohyeon shared her thoughts about also gaining popularity worldwide. “When [we] visit other countries and hear the fans cheer for us, that’s when I realized how many fans we have in the global stage.”
What’s Dreamcatcher’s secret for staying this long in the music industry? In a heartbeat, Yoohyeon said, “Teamwork.” Siyeon added that the love for the music that they’re making is something that’s important to them.
Another important thing for the group is communicating and talking with each other. “We try to share photos with each other and have a conversation about even small topics,” Dami said.
The members learned a few Filipino expressions for their fans. They practiced saying “Mahal ko kayo,” “Salamat po,” and “Akin ka.”
Filipino InSomnias, get ready for an unforgettable and dreamy night with Dreamcatcher!
